Gold Wonder Killifish - Aplocheilus lineatus
The Gold Wonder Killifish is a slender fish with brilliant yellow coloration. Females and juveniles are not quite as bright. This fish has its yellow color due to selective breeding.
This is one of the larger and hardier killifish. It is also longer-lived than most, some reaching the ripe old age of four years. It is carnivorous, and prefers to feed at the water's surface. This preference reflects its natural diet, as it feeds on insects, fish fry, and other small animals that fall in the water or congregate near the surface.
The Gold Wonder Killifish is a peaceful fish that can be kept in most community aquariums. However, do not keep them in tanks containing young fry, as they will enthusiastically eat the baby fish. Feed a variety of meaty foods including small pellets, flake, and frozen.

Ratings & Reviews
This fish took me by surprise! He has been super resilient and full of personality! He will greet you as you look into the tank. My family says he's like the family dog because of the way he acts. We've even trained ours to jump out of the water and grab food off of our fingers! Very cool!!
